Team Kindness enjoyed learning how to count from 1-5 in Spanish!

We found out some information about Joseph Lister and conducted our own experiment about germs using glitter!

Team Kindness looked at the artist Joseph Turner and recreated their own sea storm picture using pastels and chalk.

We found out some information about Christopher Columbus. He became famous as the explorer who found new lands called ‘The Americas’. Then we pretended we were explorers and spoke about our journey.

Team Kindness looked at the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel as he was a famous engineer. They looked at how Brunel built many bridges and railways. We then conducted our own experiments and created bridges using different resources.

Team Team Kindness enjoyed a Victorian style banquet. We looked at the differences in food comparing the peasants with the wealthy people.

We have been working hard with our sports coach in PE to develop our basic movements and catching using a bat and ball.

We used the Now Press Play headphones to explore Space. We spoke about the gravity on the moon and that there is less of it so you can bounce around. Team Kindness also looked at how Mars is a red planet and there are dust storms. Then we looked at Saturn and that the rings of Saturn are made up of ice and rock.

We learned about the key achievements in the history of space exploration and made our own timeline!

Team Kindness enjoyed using the VR headsets to explore Earth and the other planets in our solar system.

We enjoyed taking part in different activities for Pyjamarama day!

Team Kindness looked at how rhythm and beats can help chant rhymes. Once we could clap in beats of 4 and keep a rhythm we tried layering “Row, Row, Row your boat” with groups starting at different points. We then looked at a special African drum called a Djembe. We looked at how to play the drum properly and then used this to help keep a rhythm and beat to chant our song.
